Halloween in Miniature 2010 - Day 9: Gruesome Foods!
(Mmm, what's for dinner? New meaning to the term, "mystery meat." No, you don't want to know. ha! - Meal: Pamela Nicholson)
Welcome to Day 9 of The 12 Days of Halloween In Miniature. (You can go to the beginning of the party here at Day 1.
**Warning** to the squeamish: We're now entering the dark side of the party. What's Halloween without a little gore? Heh-heh-heh.
Well, my interest in making yucky miniature Halloween food is well-known. But there are others who also like to let their mind go a little wild...
Don't let Montana miniaturist Pamela J. Nicholson's elegant photo at her website fool you. Pamela, who creates under the name Pamela J Minis has a dark side...
Besides making some fantastic, and yummy-looking everyday foods like pizza, desserts, even a bowl of Trix cereal, (check them out!) she made some, er, dishes for those with "certain" tastes...
Can you hear me now? No?
Pamela says she made up for her "deprived" childhood when she entered the world of miniatures in 2008. "Being a typical girl, I have always been enthralled by dollhouses and miniatures," she says. "I wanted a doll collection; never acquired one. I wanted a dollhouse; never managed that either.
"In May 2008 a whole new world opened up for me when I received a beautiful dollhouse (a Greenleaf Willowcrest) for Mother's Day from my daughter. It was completely built, all I had to do was furnish it and what fun I've had in doing so.
"In early June, I started playing around with polymer clay and found that God has blessed me with a talent for creating things with it.
"I have since created many food displays that have been sent worldwide. Each display gives me great pleasure, not only in the creation of it, but in knowing that it brings someone else as much pleasure as it has me."
(And isn't that what miniatures are all about? Thanks, Pamela for sharing one side of your work with us!)
